Eh...  The result is 0/1 so nothing is truncated.  Alpha, MIPS,
PARISC and PowerPC are using the same prototype and x86 only differs
in the use of inline instead __inline__.  And anyway, that function on
MIPS is only built for CONFIG_64BIT.

What's wrong on MIPS is the comment describing the function's return value
which was changed by f24219b4e90cf70ec4a211b17fbabc725a0ddf3c (atomic: move
atomic_add_unless to generic code) and I've queued up a patch to fix that
since a few days.  I guess that was a cut and paste error from
__atomic_add_unless which indeed does return the old value.
